Solid Waste & Recycling


The PSWSU Solid Waste Division is responsible for the collection, transport, and disposal of garbage and recyclables generated from residential, commercial, and municipal properties in accordance with state and federal laws. Our refuse collection services include standard household garbage, bulky waste, and recyclable materials, including cardboard, paper, plastic, glass, and aluminum.

The Utility Division also ensures the proper disposal of all waste dropped off at the Plainfield Transfer Station, known as the Plainfield Environmental Resource Center (PERC). These materials include recyclable, electronic, bulky, and vegetative wastes from local residents, the Department of Public Works, private businesses, and other municipalities.
